I'm trying to scan a document w/ a Canon PIXMA 310. We recently changed computers and might be missing a vital piece of software. I tried to scan to MS Office Pic Manager and to Paint. Neither has an...


What OS are you using? Do you have the full software installed, the Canon driver or the OS generic driver? If you plugged in the USB cable before installing the Canon software, you probably got the generic driver which doesn't run with the scanner. Uninstall the driver and unplug the data cable; then download the software from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx310#DriversAndSoftware (select your OS) and install it. Try a new data cable and different port. (Scanning requires bi-directional communication and can fail when the printer works.)

Paint (in XP through Win7) should work if the computer recognizes that the device has a scanner. File > Import from Camera or Scanner. Check your hardware listing. (For Win7 Start > Devices and Printers; older OS versions may have the list under the Control Panel.) The printer might show up twice if installed correctly.

I hope this helps.

Canon mx310 won't print wirelessly from laptop. all of network is working except this. pls help. Linksys is the router, Dell running Vista is the laptop, Canon is the printer.


The MX310 is not a wireless printer. I own it and have never seen that feature anywhere in the specs either. Try the MX860 (my roommate owns it and it's VERY nice).

Is the Pixma MX310 compatible with Apple's Airport Extreme?


Try to check your cable connection maybe its properly inserted in your port. If it continues to appear try reinstalling your printer. When installing follow the steps in the installation. Disconnect the usb cable to the PC prior to installation. You will be ask to attached it to the PC during installation before completing the installation. Check also your network settings maybe some plug ins are disconnected. After installation it needs also to restart the pc so that new changes of the settings will be detected.
Please rate this solution so that I will have more bases to suggest if you will elaborate on the result.

thank you.

Canon pixma MX310 scanner not working


I read somewhere that the printer/scanner must be plugged directly into the computer in order to scan.  I tried it, and it works.  Printing can be done wirelessly, but apparently not scanning!

Printing to a Canon MX310 through a print server


i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

cheers!!

Connection


Nope, the Canon printers don't come with a USB cable.  You have to supply it yourself.  I just used the one from my previous printer.
